It's never fun to always be thinking about which color combinations look like best and which should be avoided, and with all the different fashion experts making new rules and combinations it's hard to keep up. That is why I choose to give you the down-low on everything color-related and show you show you can use color combinations to your advantage to create looks that kill.
Best Outfit Color Combinations
Pink Color Combination
Nothing says warmth and happiness like pink. Soft pink is subtle yet classy and offers an eye-catching pop of color to any look. The best thing about pink is that it comes in a wide range of hues from baby pink to electric pink and everywhere in between. These colors are all very different but style great with the same color palette.
The best pink color combination is:
- Pink and gray
- Pink and white
- Pink and blue
Red and Blue Combination
Sometimes it's the unlikely color combinations that work together the best - and this happens to be the case with a red and blue combination. This is an unexpected combination with two vibrant color hues that make each other pop. Be playful with your pairing of these two colors, it really is a statement combination that you can have a lot of fun with.
The best red and blue color combination is:
- Red and Blue
- Red and Blue with brown accents
Blue and Orange Color Combination
Blue and orange together to create stunning and unique looks, who would have thought! Blue and orange are both relaxing hues that work together like a dream. They accent each other perfectly and both can be worn as a top or a bottom color depending on how you style it.
The best blue and orange color combination is:
- Blue and orange complete look
Sometimes we get stuck in our usual ways of always wearing dark-colored pants or blue jeans but with this color combination, you are able to easily end this routine. Style a blue jean jacket and a burnt orange color skirt together for a fall-inspired look that looks effortlessly chic.
Maroon Color Combination
Maroon is a dark shade that is easily ignored by most people who are more likely to opt for a forest green, navy blue or black. As a result, maroon doesn't get the love it deserves and sometimes people have a difficult time combining it with other colors. However, maroon is a dark color that can go with almost anything, which is one of the reasons we love it so much.
Best maroon color combination:
- Maroon and black
- Maroon and gray
Styling maroon with a subtle color like gray - think gray wide-legged pants- is great for making the color pop. It is such a dark, rich hue that styling it with any lighter color really makes it look so much more vibrant. While styling it with black is the perfect alternative to escaping the safety net of always wearing black on black.
Peach Color Combination
Peach is a color that is not produced as much as yellows and oranges so when you see it and have to style it, it can be quite difficult. Despite the troubles styling it, peach is a beautiful color that makes the person wearing it look more radiant and alive. If you are looking for a new and trendy color to add to your wardrobe consider choosing peach.
Best peach color combination:
- Peach and green
- Peach and blue
Much like orange and blue, peach and blue is a great color combination. Another great option is light green or army green for example worn as a bomber jacket.
Violet Color Combination
Violet is one of those colors you don't realize you love until you see it on someone else. It has almost a fairytale-like feel to it, and since it's not often worn, you will get plenty of compliments when you do! Don't shy away from this stunning color, welcome it and all its styling possibilities.
Best violet color combinations:
- Violet and tan
- Violet and white
- Violet and blue
Violet goes well with any other neutral color. Especially whites, tans, and light blues. You can never go wrong with a violet-colored outfit and white sneakers.
Now that you know how to combine different colors in unique ways it is time to branch out and add some new colors to your wardrobe.
